Read the story; Short story about my ex. He lost everything, his job, business, etc he wanted to start all over, didn’t have the means, he told me the amount he needed for a fresh start, I gave him 75% of the total amount, consistently sent him airtime so he won’t be stranded, dude used the money to flex with different women, got a baby out of it, I silently walked away, barely two months later, he called me to tell me he’s not eaten since yesterday and doesn’t know who else to turn to for help, I still sent him 20k then I blocked him.
Three yrs later, he’s using another number to contact me to tell me the baby wasn’t his, the “baby mama” just wanted money, he demanded for a DNA test and she skipped town. All I said was “sorry about that” then I blocked him.
Baba dey my telegram dey chat with himself everyday as we speak. All my friends can confirm how generous I am, sometimes they wanna borrow money but instead I tell them not to pay back, some borrow and don’t pay back, na recently I enter wickedness phase of being stingy and it has been sweet, I’ll leave the phase when I know someone is worthy of my generosity. In addition, he told me he knows I was trying to use money to trap him into marrying me. Like I said, men love gold diggers when they have gold.
